Follow You on Pinterest?

From Peppar & Vanilj via Vosges Paris

Back in June of 2010 Victoria of SfgirlbyBay invited me to be a part of the "Pin It Forward" campaign she was hosting with this new site called Pinterest. So I, along with 300 other participants jumped in to help launch the now very successful Pinterest. Funny thing is I don't know how two years swept by so fast and how I never realized how much Pinterest would become a part of my daily online activity. In fact I found at the time it was a bit hard to wrap my head around it. Since then I have created 65 boards of some of my favourite things I have found online and along with that, many new like-minded friends.  With that said, I thought I'd show you a few of my favourite boards here today, and invite you to visit me over there and also to invite you to leave a comment here to let me know about yours.  Are you on Pinterest? Leave your Pinterest page url in the comments, I'd love to visit you!

Kristin - The Goat said...

I swore I wasn't going to join in the Pinterest craze because I didn't have enough time for it - I knew it was going to be a time suck. Weeeellll, I finally joined a month or so ago and have enjoyed it very much! I love how many things I've made, inspired by a pin, in this short amount of time, too.

It is so cool to look back on that, "What Home Means to You" blog hop launching Pinterest, isn't it? So weird how we all didn't really know much about it, & now it's (in my opinion) taking up more time than facebook! So cool, & I love your pins!

Suzanne said...

Fun idea! I've been following you for a while on Pinterest, and sometimes we even pin the same things from different sources. Funny.

Anyway, my most popular board is a very pretty collection of container gardens - check it out if you can :)
